Equal Singapore

Equal Singapore

 As the food and beverage industry on our little island blossom, Singaporeans get to savour more variety of delicious food as more eateries pop up and overseas restaurants make their way here! It’s hard to resist food and inevitably, it might take a hit on our health while we enjoy those hearty meal times with our friends and family.
Having been in a desk bound job for about 4 years now, I find it very important to watch my diet before my belly suffers from the unsightly consequences. One of the ways to tide through those long and sleepy afternoons would be a cuppa coffee or tea to keep myself fresh! I have a habit to make my own drinks as I can control the amount of sugar that goes into it – I always feel so guilty when I see baristas pumping those sugar syrup into our drinks, though it does translates into a very yummy drink. However, Equal comes to our rescue as they launches two new product lines – the Equal Gold and Equal Stevia, sweetening our daily lives without compromising on the taste of the beverages, and most importantly, our health!
EQUAL GOLD

Since we consume sugar in our daily lives, be it baking a cake or balancing out the taste of a home brewed soup, why not use a healthier alternative instead? The Equal Gold line is a sugar free sweetener and contains zero calories, suitable for beverages, cooking and baking! Statistics have shown that having too much sugar in your diet can have adverse effects on your health. They may not show immediately but the effects may come in the long run. Substituting the sweetness in our food with the “good sugar” are one of the small things that we can do to make a difference in our life!
Equal Gold is available in a 50 sticks x 40g boxes priced at $5.95 at major supermarkets (NTUC, Cold Storag etc).
EQUAL STEVIA

The Equal Stevia is a natural sweetener made using extracts of the Stevia plant. The Stevia plant has long been used as a sweetener for many years and I noticed that lesser of the Equal Stevia sugar is needed to achieve the same sweetness as regular sugar! The natural sweetness allows me to enjoy my coffee/tea without feeling the guilt since it contains zero calories!
Equal Stevia is available in 40 sticks x 80g boxes priced at $7,40 or 200 tablet dispenser pack priced at $12.35 at major supermarkets (NTUC, Cold Storage etc) and beauty & healthcare retailers (Watsons, Guardian etc).
Note: Both Equal Gold and Equal Stevia are suitable for diabetics as it does not affect the blood sugar or insulin levels! Do visit Equal's Facebook page (Club Equal Singapore) here for more information!
